Abstract:
From 2001 to 2006 data were collected to measure the effects of different fuels reduction treatments on the soils of the Manitou Experimental Forest, Colorado. The data includes profiles of temperature, heat-flux, water content, and CO2 at different depths in the soil and a horizontal transect surface radiation . Fuels reduction treatments included slash-piles, broadcast/lop-and-scatter areas, chipped areas, and control areas. The slash-piles and several broadcast/lop-and-scatter areas were burned. The different treatments and measurements were distributed among six pseudo-replicate plots.
